playbook. blame president obama for the polarized political climate zoosh i think instead of trying to bring people together was a manifesto for, hey, it's my way or the highway. i don't think that's necessarily productive. >> we will get a reality check on the grand ole party's grand ole problems next on "now." excuse me, sir i'm gonna have to ask you to power down your little word game. i think your friends will understand. oh no, it's actually my geico app...see? ...i just uh paid my bill. did you really? from the plane? yeah, i can manage my policy, get roadside assistance, pretty much access geico 24/7. sounds a little too good to be true sir. i'll believe that when pigs fly. ok, did she seriously just say that? geico. just click away with our free mobile app. >> what do you think the party must do better? where do we go in the future? this is your chance to make your voice heard, and we're listening. >> as the rnc begins its annual winter meeting in charlotte, chairman is soliciting ideas on how to renew, grow, and win. mretco reports that he will tell attendees tomorrow that
a mountain of debt. america needs real budget reform but president obama insists on playing politics with our country's credit rating. hard 4hardworking american taxps need to balance their budgets. they understand what the president does not. the president bragged in his press conference last week that quotes it's been a busy and productive four years and i expect the same for the next four years." well, it looks like he means that we can count on for your years -- count on four more years of wasteful washington spending. it is time for president obama to finally keep his promise to get america's finances in order. thank you, madam president. i yield the floor, and i suggest the absence of a quorum. the presiding officer: the clerk will call the roll. quorum call: quorum call: quorum call: quorum call: quorum call: quorum call: quorum call: the presiding officer: the senator from iowa. mr. harkin: mr. president, first i ask that proceedings under the quorum call be dispensed with. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. harkin: secondly, i ask unanimous consent that stephanie lynn and
senator from massachusetts, elizabeth warren and republican senator john mccain. >>> president obama's second term barely underway. a lot of political buzz about 2016 and the next presidential election and some of the things happening fuelling that buzz. you have hillary clinton's testimony about the terrorist attack in benghazi, libya adding to the speculation about whether or not she is going to run. some consider clint's five hour confrontation as a sign of things to come. and then you have vice president joe biden shaking hands, jogging along the parade route after the inauguration, was he trying to show he is pretty fit enough to be president in four years? joining us to talk about all of this anna navarra and larry, the director for the center for paul acs at the university of virginia. larry, i want to start off with you. a lot of people say we might be seeing a preview of 2016. folks i have talked to say bill clinton making sure there are no barack obamas around the corner, clearing the way for his wife. can you see any signs? can you read the tea leaves? >> i think people ar
, was a gift to political journalists, that denver debate. b, it said so much about who obama was. the fact that was the day he didn't feel he needed to really deliver, but more importantly to me one of the most powerful scenes in the book is the young obama staffers in chicago watching the debate unfold and being horrified because they had convinced themselves that if obama was going to lose this, it was their fault, it was on the staffers. but what they saw last night was, oh, my god, our hero let us down. they were so shocked by it. >> one of the other revelations in the book is where you talk about the fact that the president faces at least ten, ten credible threats to his safety. and i guess that explains why following the inauguration speech when he was seen walking in washington, he was surrounded by countless numbers of agents because he literally can't do that without that level of protection. >> i mean, it makes me nervous to even talk about it. watching those scenes, i was thinking i am glad i'm not part of the secret services. it would be so anxiety provoking. and also the gun c
: scott, mary jo white's closest friends say she dislikes washington and disdains office politics and bureaucracy. they say her dream job would be commissioner of major league baseball or f.b.i. director. she was considered for that latter post before president obama picked white, one of this generation's best prosecutors, to police wall street. the first woman u.s. attorney for the southern district of new york, white led prosecution teams that convicted mob boss john gotti, a vicious mob killer who had escaped prosecution by tampering with juries. white kept her jury anonymous and sequestered. she built the best set of terrorism prosecutors in america, convicting the blind sheik for conspiracy to bomb the united nations and other new york landmarks. she also convicted ramsey youseff for the 1993 world trade center bombing. and she was on osama bin laden's trail before anyone, indicting the al qaeda leader for the deaths of 18 u.s. soldiers in somalia in 1993, charges that later included the 1998 bombings of u.s. embassie embassies in kenya and tanzania. >> so i'd say that's a pr
.d.r., but it was basically a domestic speech. if there's one thing i know about barack obama, having written a biography of him and having some contact with him, the one thing he is cop standpointly asking about when it comes to israeli politics is who is my constituency? in other words, if i am going to spend political capital-- which i have a limited amount of for the collected number of issues i have to deal with for a certain period of time-- who am i appealing to? and that is something that came out ofeate election. it has to be a little more encouraging than it could have been. not enormously but under encouraging than if bennett had come in second or third and the likud list had triumphed. no question. >> it's a major-- look, the election -- >> rose: go ahead. >> it's a major change today compared to what you thought it was 48 urs ago. >> on the other hand-- >> and yair lapid is not sustainable change. >> i do think it's sustainable change. >> rose: it's not one election with one-- >> absolutely. looking, i don't think beebe is opposed to a transaction with the palestinians. i know that for sure.
think that the administration has understood that well? >> i think obama understands it. i think obama understands that we're in a new age. if you will, the 20th century was a century of struggle for hegemony. and that involved direct political contests, military power. we are now in an age in which struggle for hegemony makes no sense, it's more whether we can establish enough stability in the world that we can deal with global problems. in that context, economic health is the point of departure. it's also the point of departure for global support for the united states and respect for the united states. >> brown: when he brings up climate change though through security, that's what he's talking about? >> exactly. but i do suspect as a practical matter he's going to be more preoccupied with potential strategic challenges. in the middle east, first of all and that involves a whole gambit of issues, in our relations with china, potentialfully our relations with russia and the growing problem of how do we structure an effective alliance with europe. and these the kind of issues that requi

obama in 2008, something changed that had been the case for 16 years. from 1992 to 2008, the two co-villains in the republican party sort of narrative of the american politics were bill and hillary clinton and every minute of every day the republicans were attacking the clintons over everything and the minute they were not the face of the democrat party the clintons came to play a new role in sort of a republican narrative. they were the good democrats that represented the bygone era and fell to me watching the hearings, yes, i believe she handled herself very well, a masterful performance but if she decides to run for president in 2016, it is back to what life used to be like for her, where every single day, every single way, republicans whether it's libya, whether it's anything else, you know as well as i do they'll find whatever it takes to go after her and the great psychological question of the next few months and years. does she want to live through that again or decide, you know what? i'd rather do something else with the time i've got. >> much more popular as a servant than
enough for him, bill, to defeat the republicans politically or even based on policy which you would expect from any president. for president obama it is about pounding the republican party into oblivion. bill: let me talk about how republicans react to this in a moment, monica. emily, get on record, what do you think about the dustbin of history from speaker boehner? >> i think it is disappointing john boehner would go to the extreme talking points. he has not always been an extreme guy. he has been in the house for a long time. look to president obama, look actually at his record. when we moved into the sequester fight in early december, the first thing out of president obama's mouth he would look at any good idea regardless who it came from. he has consistent history of trying to work across the aisle. bill: does he now? bipartisan? >> the ideas that he a lick tated in the inauguration speech, those are american values. these are not traditionally democratic values. republicans used to be able to talk about these issues. it is really the republican party that has left the center,
of the political hubbub about whether it would be an act of terrorism -- to me, a lot of that is white noise. there's not been an attempt to have stability in libya. the obama administration has been repeating the mistake that the bush administration made in iraq and afghanistan. they were focused on the military campaign but not focus on the nation building. we have paid a huge cost for that in iraq afghanistan. a lot of the arms in the arsenal of muammar gaddafi have been smuggled into countries like y fueled a the fi fresh insurgency. we have taken our eye off the ball in libya ever since the overthrow of gaddafi. that's the big issue from the hearings. host: our guest is max boot, senior fellow with the council on foreign relations. was a senior foreign policy adviser to the john mccain campaign in 2008. he is the author of a new book called "invisible armies." a little more about the faces of your book -- a little more about the thesis of your book. this idea of guerrilla warfare is not something new. guest: i exam the long history of insurgency and guerrilla warfare and it predates convention
